Correcting a Mistake Using Folders

Jump to solution

I organized my files by creating folders. I accidentally put some folders inside of others. Is there a way to move them to the level of organization I am looking for?

Hello, @james_coyle !  You can easily move folders in your files.  This link will give you those directions.  I like Drag and Drop, too!  https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Instructor-Guide/How-do-I-move-and-organize-my-files-as-an-instru...

Here is a nested folder situation, with the "inside" folder in the wrong place:

With the "outside" folder selected in the left-hand hierarchy, drag the "inside" folder to its destination on the left:

You can see that it ends up at a different spot, which is what you wanted.

Thanks for the advice and the information. My problem is that I put new folders inside of other folders by mistake and I want to relocate them. There appears to be no way to reorganize created folders. I am not even sure how to get rid of them so I can start from scratch (without losing the contents, of course.)
